    Subjectbug in i810_init_cursor


    The kernel is 2.5.67-bk3 with latest fbdev patches (Apr 11).

    I loaded the fbdev like that:
    modprobe i810fb mtrr=1 accel=1 xres=640 yres=480 hsync1=30 hsync2=60 vsync1=50 vsync2=100 bpp=16 dcolor=1
    modprobe fbcon

    And got:
    PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 00:02.0
    I810FB: fb0 : Intel(R) 815 (Internal Graphics with AGP)
    Framebuffer Device v0.9.0
    I810FB: Video RAM : 4096K
    I810FB: Monitor : H: 30-60 KHz V: 50-100 Hz
    I810FB: Mode : 640x480-16bpp@99Hz
    Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 80x30

    And now as soon as the "login: " came I did:
    fbset mode -a
    (the mode can be anything)

    And I got following:
    Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address
    printing eip:

    After that, the console is a bit scrambled (although mode is set) and
    I can't see anything I am writing or doing. I simply use SysRq to reboot.

    However, if I delay with fbset a bit it seem to work as expected... but
    that might be a total random aswell.

    Oh.. and if I get it running correctly the cursor is pretty strange
    (somekind of red dots are falling down inside the transparent cursor
    block). If I play with cursor as described in VGA-softcursor.txt, I
    will be able to get a normal cursor.

    Otherwise everything is just perfect :-)
